These themes now use support the theme chooser wallpapers app (link below). All of the full themes (not basic series) come packaged with 9 color-matched wallpapers that you can use. To access them, install the theme chooser wallpapers app and the app will automatically show the apps matching your theme. This is based entirely on CyanogenMod's wallpaper selector and I take no credit for any of the code supplied the the wallpapers app. All credit goes to them for making all of this possible.
Attn: Theme developers. Anyone is more than welcome to use this app for their own themes. Just contact me and I would be more than happy to give any info necessary for using it and my xml codes that I use.[/SIZE]
These are my themes to use with the CyanogenMod 7 theme chooser.
To use, just install from the market (see links below) and select the theme from the theme chooser app.
Questions, comments, or recommendations? Let me know in the comments and I'll see what I can do.
I'm always looking for ideas on how to make it better
Theme Chooser Wallpapers
These are just like the full series, but without any wallpapers, themed widgets, or themed third party icons. Direct download links below
More tweaks to my theme than you can shake a stick at. Dont Panic has created metamorphs for all the lockscreens, main volumes and many more tweaks. If you are looking for the xtreme dialer theme, this is the place
Lots of people have asked me about the widgets used in the Minimal Magic screenshots. The clock is SiMi clock and can be found on the android market. The "Camera" and "Mail" widgets are actually custom made by me. I use them with Desktop Visualizer (also on the android market) as 4 x 1 widgets.
If you would like the graphics I already made, you can download them here.
There are now two downloads available that each include every color of wallpaper. Not sure which one you need? If you screen resolution is 480x800, 480x853 or something in that ballpark, you need the HDPI version. If your resolution is 320x480 or something in that ballpark, you need the MDPI version.
1) Why isn't the volume control/lockscreen/reboot menu themed?
Unfortunately, the theme chooser app cannot override these themes yet. You can now download metamorphs to theme these courtesy of Don't Panic. There is a link to the downloads in the post above.
2) My status bar icons are not theming, why?
For the full theme to apply, you may need to reboot your phone. To change the color of the notification power widgets indicators, go to settings->CyanogenMod settings->Interface->Indicator color
3) What color Should I use for CyanogenMod / LauncherPro to match the theme?
BLUE BIONIC:Use color # 0052f7 GALAXY GREEN:Use color # 15fe00 MINIMAL MAGIC:Use color #ffffff ORANGE OCTANE:Use color # ff7b1d PUNK PINK:Use color # fe00be PURPLE PUNCH:Use color # cb30ff RED REMIX:Use color # fc0000
4) My status bar doesn't look like the screenshots. What's wrong?
Status bars sometimes don't apply properly 100% of the time. If it does not apply like it should, reboot your phone and you should be in great shape.
5) I had a different theme flashed and after applying your theme, it looks REALLY weird. What's wrong
Flashed themes do not work well with theme chooser themes (like mine). For best results, use theme chooser themes with stock CyanogenMod. I'm not saying it absolutely won't work, I'm just saying it's really unlikely that it will work.
6) I'm having trouble installing an upgrade, can you help?
Try switching to a different theme, downloading from the market, then switching back. If that doesn't work, you can download directly from the xda-developers thread below.
7) The app seems to be stuck installing. Can you help?
First, make sure you followed step 6. The market has issues recognizing that it completed installing theme apps after they are installed. This is a problem with all of the theme apps on the market, not just mine. Not having the theme applied when updating helps this 90% of the time. If it is still stuck, force close the market and the problem should be fixed.
8) On minimal magic, some of my notifications still show up with black text. Why?
This is a known issue with this theme. Some apps have hard coded the black color instead of using best practices and referencing the android settings. Because of that, many of them cannot be themed.
9) Can you remove the verizon/att/tmobile/vodafone etc. etc. name from the pulldown on minimal magic?
This cannot yet be done, but may be possible in the near future.
19 new icons have been themed or updated:
ES File Explorer
Google Sky Map
